I decided to try out Stitch Fix. I was so nervous, I started and stopped several times but I finally decided to pull the trigger so to speak and to get my first fix. Like most things in my life I do a lot of research on it before hand. I read several other blog posts about how to get good fixes. I mean I was potentially only going to do this once and I didn’t want to waste my time or theirs with stuff that wasn’t me. I was so excited to finally decide to get my first box and then couldn’t wait for it to arrive.
When I opened the box I laughed out loud. Even though this was my first fix I felt like my stylist “got me”! Here was a whole box of things I would love to have, in styles I love, in colors I love. Black & white! It was fun. It was also even funnier because earlier in the week Gunnar told me he didn’t think he could take one more black and white pattern. Apparently, it has begun to be my thing. Time to switch it up!
One of my favorite things about trying Stitch Fix was getting to try the clothes on at home. I know I could go to a store and buy stuff come home and then return it but that’s a lot of time I’m giving up just to try things on. I really liked getting to put outfits together of my pieces, it was great to see what I had in my closet that I could put with the ones from my fix. Even if you don’t blog and you try stitch fix I think it was really beneficial not only to try on my pieces but style them so that I could evaluate how the piece would fit in with my current wardrobe.
I spent some time upfront really thinking about what I would want and trying to pin images that represent not only things I like but things similar to what I own. I tried to be as thorough and truthful about what I wanted and liked on my style profile. So without further ado here were my pieces.
This Abigale French hoodie was so outside of what style shirt I normally get, it was a great experience to try it on. I liked the contrasting pocket and the weight of it was great too, something that could easily transition to spring. I also thought the contrasting pocket and strings were a great detail. I didn’t keep it however the collar didn’t work out very well with my shape and the whole thing kept riding up even when I only had it on to try it out.
The Tina Checkered Infinity scarf is great, it is really soft and incredibly warm. I definitely had to add it to my keep pile. I love that buffalo plaid print on it and have a scarf addiction problem so it was a no-brainer. I am also wearing the Reagan Skinny Pant which were crazy comfortable. I had just purchased a new pair of black skinny pants so I didn’t keep these but they were great.
This dress, the Bonita from Brixon Ivy was 100% on point for me, I already own 3 other black dresses that are very similar so I didn’t keep it but it was exactly me. I am on the look out for a dress that is similar to this with pockets so I can wear it to weddings and have a place for my lens caps and other things I like to keep on hand during a wedding day.
I fell in LOVE with the Rada 3/4 sleeve top, I have been looking for a new stripped shirt for a while, my last one was getting really tired. The material is so soft, and I love the length, I think I could wear it with some leggings for a comfortable weekend outfit. Or dress it up with some jeans and a vest. Another feature of this shirt I loved, which surprised me, was the side panels. At first, I was like really? White side panels? but I liked how the silhouette looked once I had it on. So this was also a keeper!
I promise I sweep my floor every day! But apparently keeping the salt out during the winter is going to be an uphill battle for us. Ha! I am so excited to continue Stitch Fix, I already have my next fix scheduled!
